Star Wars finally has another holiday special and this time it’s Lego!

What happens when the cuteness of legos meets the horrifying 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special? We get the new hybrid of Star Wars parody that is The Lego Holiday Star Wars Special. The show, released on Life Day 2020 on DisneyPlus, is a family-friendly comedic jumble of time-traveling, Easter egg hunting, Wookie growling fun. Deseret News’ Entertainment Editor Herb Scribner joins hosts Andy Farnsworth and KellieAnn Halvorsen to explore this new take on the Star Wars universe, and compare it to the iconically terrible 1978 made-for-tv special that we have already covered on this podcast. So grab your Life Day robe and your traditional holiday Tip-Yip to snack on, Fan Effect is diving back into one of our favorite fandoms to explore this galaxy of Lego-themed humor. We apologize for the audio distortion, we had microphone issues we were not aware of at the time of the recording. Beyond Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gaming and Tech, the brains behindFan Effect are connoisseurs of categories surpassing the nerdy. Brilliant opinions and commentary on all things geek, but surprising knowledge and witty arguments over pop culture, Star Trek, MARVEL vs DC, and a wide range of movies, TV shows, and more.
